|DEVELOPMENT OF A REGIONAL STRATEGY FOR THE RESTORATION AND REHABILITATION OF DEGRADED AREAS ON THE SOUTH COAST OF PERU
|Project total budget:
Initiative 20x20 has been launched through the World Resources Institute (WRI) at the 20th Conference of the Parties (COP20) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It is a country-led initiative to change land restoration dynamics in Latin America with the aim to contribute to global efforts in this field by undertaking a commitment to restore 20 million hectares of degraded lands by 2020.

The overall target will be achieved by fulfilling a combination of goals related to resilient and climatically sustainable agroforestry; agro-pastoral activities; agricultural improvement; and natural reforestation, among others. It also includes avoided deforestation and the implementation of land restoration programs, requiring an initial investment of $100 million from private sources.
In this context, Peru expects to restore and rehabilitate a total of 3.2 million hectares of degraded lands, comprising 2.0 million hectares for reforestation and 1.2 million hectares for rehabilitation in the coastal, Andean (highlands) and Amazon (rainforest) regions, considering that the southern coastal region of Peru contains approximately 0.6 million hectares of lands that have been degraded or are in the process of becoming severely degraded due to inappropriate land use and depletion of the original vegetation cover, particularly in the “lomas” (hills) formations, where a semi-dry or sub-humid tropical climate is predominant.
